Paraphrase Tool

By Matthew

What can a paraphrase tool do for you? To get the most value from a paraphrasing tool, you should start by writing down your thoughts. Submit these thoughts to a paraphrase tool and look at many variations. Does something stand out to you? Are the paraphrases saying the same thing or are they clarifying something new for you? Are they very much the same or are they surprisingly simple while retaining the meaning you intended?

The reality is that our first drafts are often convoluted and difficult to read. Few of us speak or think in fully revised paragraphs, and expecting that anyone would is unreasonable. Revision is the real work of writing, and at the heart of revision lies paraphrasing. Below are the different ways you can paraphrase for free with our service, and we will be adding to these options over time.

  2. Elaborate - Sometimes you need more detail, and this mode will give you many ways of providing details, adding qualifications, events, or imagery to your sentences.

  3. Simple - Einstein said you should strive to express something as simply as possible but no simpler. Some thoughts carry inherent complexity, but with this mode, you can strip things down to their simplest form, while retaining the meaning.
